It's nice to meet you! I'm Ellen Lazaretti, a User Experience Designer.
I'm currently looking for a full-time UX job in the Austin, Texas area. Most recently I was the sole designer on a distributed scrum team dedicated to tech debt and enhancements of existing system components. We worked on a legacy software product focused on planning, assessment and reporting in the EdTech space. Currently, I enjoy serving on the Austin User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA) board.
Over the past few years, I pivoted my career from visual design to user experience design. My journey started with informal online courses, which led me to return to college and complete a degree in user experience. I sought out hackathons and workshops to gain hands-on experience during this time. Solving problems, advocating for users and collaborating with diverse teams are a few of my passions.
